Heba Diffuser from Hookah-Shisha.com.

Unless your downstem has a flare or knut on it, then your out of luck.

Make a homemade diffuser out of bendy straws.

I was thinking more along the lines of a ping pong ball with holes punched in it. Getting it to fit around that ball on the end of his stem and still be airtight is going to be a mofo unless he just wanted to epoxy it on there or something.

Straws work wonders when it comes down to quieting the hookah.

I use a heba diffuser, and the hookah is virutally silent. The smoke quality is smoother as well.

I think Guerila posted a video tutorial not too long ago about making a diffuser out of like an empty prescription pill container or something. Might be something to look into.

Host them on an image hosting site like Imageshack.us. Then it will give you a "Hotlink for Forums" and you copy and paste that into your post.

If you have them on your computer you can go the bottom of your post while you are typing it and click manage attachments. then you can attack up to five jpegs or something of that general nature to the post. Then hit post and they are placed in nice little thumbnails for us!

I actually like the sound of the bubbling, but you could always buy a diffuser. That reduces the noise. Ive seen some videos that a few of the members have posted of homemade diffusers. Check the treads for that topic. That may help ya out.

Yeah, your best bet might be to just shove 4 or 5 bendy straws into the downstem. Someone had a pic of it a little while back, but I'm not sure where. Do a quick forum search and you'll probly find it.

I shall answer that with another quote I just found by the wonderful Dunkel:

I put the short ends of the straw inside the bottom of the stem, I then cut the straws off 1/2" below the bendy part and bend the straws to face in opposite directions. It takes about 1 minute to make and never has to be cleaned as it's tossed after the session.
Hope that helps.
